All valid points. I just can't shake the sense that something is holding them back in their practices, and that this is them letting off steam -- the solo project using up the music that the rest of the band refuses to play. As you say, it doesn't seem to be getting us anywhere fast. Which is weird, because in a lot of other cities, that role can be catalytic. Especially when there is clearly a shared sense that Something Must Change.

I would have thought that as creative workers, architects were free to dream every time they put forward a proposal to a client. And on institutional projects, they're actively redefining public space with every choice they make, so there is enrmous potential to use that campus to change the conversation. Maybe I'm missing something.

Out of curiosity, does anyone know how many certified urbanists or urban planners were on board to this exercise, compared to the corresponding number on the city's side?
